Recent years have witnessed significant advances in unraveling the elegant mechanisms by which intracellular bacterial pathogens induce and/or block apoptosis, which can influence disease progression. This intriguing aspect of the host-pathogen interaction adds another fascinating dimension to our understanding of the exploitation of host cell biology by intracellular bacterial pathogens.
